They’re our athletes

Thank you.

Two little words but a big sentiment which our wonderful British Olympic medallists should be quick to say over the remaining days of London 2012.

By no rationale should Britain be the third (at the time of writing) most successful Olympic nation in the world.

We are a small island race. We don’t have billions of people to choose from in terms of our talent pool.

Yet, we are performing brilliantly. And this is, in no small part, down to you and me.

You can easily draw a graph which clearly plots how the establishment of National Lottery- and the subsequent investment into sport – has transformed our fortunes.

So thanks to those brilliant athletes who are giving us the best of times.

And thanks to us too. As we have all played our part in making this the greatest games ever.

    I think it is pretty self-aggrandising to suggest that ‘we’ should be thanked for our contribution to British sporting success. Do you really think my purchase of a lottery ticket is grounds for such high praise?
